Craft as a Liberal Education: A Response

  • B. K. Down Shoreditch College of Education


It is important to correct some of the impressions that may have been created by Mr. Allen in his last issue of Studies in Design Education and Craft 9.1. Specifically I want to examine the Peters' analysis of education and the Hirst account of liberal education with reference to the place of craft education in the curriculum. I will maintain that an acceptance of the Peters-Hirst theses is perfectly consistent with an emphasis on craft education.
